Ontario’s largest local food network connecting buyers, sellers and processors has undergone a major upgrade.
The Greenbelt Fund has launched the upgraded Ontariofresh.ca platform with improved functionality and design – and the platform continues to be free, as always.
Ontariofresh.ca is an online marketplace where Ontario’s farmers and producers can market their products to a range of buyers.
The platform has over 2,500 members from across Ontario, representing businesses at every point on the local food value chain, including buyers, sellers, processors and service providers.
All products on the platform are Ontario grown-and-raised, and processed or prepared foods must contain 80% Ontario ingredients by volume.
The new features members can expect on Ontariofresh.ca include a shipping calculator that compares shipping rates from various distributors in one place.
It also includes new ‘Buy Local’ networks to increase member visibility and allow for cross-promotion.
